$16 trillion in debt, the debt per person in the united states america has gone from $34,000 to close to $51 $51,000. we need to look at things such as the gasoline prices which on inauguration day for president obama was $1.84. now we are close to $4. think of the tens of thousands that have been spent for families to keep up with the gas prices, the high commodity prices we see in the grocery stores that are continuing to cause us trouble and the fact that we have an incredible unemployment situation in the united states of america at -- that is not reflected in 8.1 percent. we need the right regulation policies and tax policies to get small businesses funding, make sure we are open for business and we can get production and manufacturing back here and get people back to work. it is important to talk about that after a revision of the g.d.p. numbers in the second quarter down to 1.3 percent. that is below anemic. we are not out of the fiscal woods yet. >>neil: we talk about economic numbers. you preferred to the g.d.p. data. just today, congressman, we had surprisingly strong growth
. the real issue for the united states is to put a world map up from 2001 and one for 2012 and the expansion, the gentleman graphic california reach and the numbers of people fighting for al qaeda and their allies have grown a great deal in the last decade and no one is reporting on at "new york times" or the "washington post" and we are providing air support or we did in libya, to people who are, really, in afghanistan they would be called the taliban. the obama era as far as the militancy has been head in the sander a and america will pay for it very dearly. >>neil: i hope you are wrong, michael. but you have been prescient. thank you. >> early voting, early advantage if this guy? not if north carolina is any indication where early or later, mitt romney could be it. that is after this.

. it has been monitoring united states elections for the better part of a decade but this time around, liberal activists are coordinating with these guys to watch for any hint of vote are suppression by conservatives. the attorney general of the state of next will not have anything to do with it. it is a weird kind of a group of what looks like a coalition of forces. what do they do? show up at sites and what are they supposed to do? >>guest: well, our concern is we don't know what they are doing, that is why we are raising a red flag. in are laws in the state of texas and we expect this u.n.-related partner and their affiliates to abide by texas laws and we sent them a message that if they fail to do so, they are subject to criminal prosecution. let me make this point, and that is, you talked about how liberal activists have gotten associated with this group and they had a meeting with this group in april and the activists include project vote, project vote is an affiliate of acorn, the now disgraced organization that was involved in vote are fraud. we need to make sure in texas we d
the president of the united states. [ applause ] >> thank you, everyone, let me shake sure i urge the folks who are here because they have played an important role in this. first of all, your congressional delegation, senator bob menendez, sing lautenberg and congressman, and atlantic county executive, and the mayor of briganttine. i thank everyone who has been involved in the entire rescue and recovery process. at the top of my list i have to say that governor christie throughout this process has been responsive. he has been aggressive in making sure that the state got out in front of this incredible storm. and the people of new jersey recognize that he has put his heart and soul into making sure the people of new jersey bounce back even stronger than before so i thank him for his extraordinary leadership and partnership. i thank the congressional delegation because part of the reason we are going to be able to respond quickly to all of this is because they helped to make sure that fema financing was in place. we are very appreciative of those efforts. i thank craig fugate. sometimes people th
where he has exported jobs from the united states and then do you think romney has any foreign policy understanding of what is going on in the middle east? did president obama coming into office? >> no. >>neil: if you argue he has done great on phone policy and he knew nothing about it going in, maybe that is not the signature issue. >> well, it is not an issue that, let me put it this way, is romney going to lose on foreign policy? the answer is, no, unless he does another tour of foreign countries. >> he can do nothing right, and i am shocked if you admit it, you have a gifted sense of plumier, and last night, i was at the dinner and quoted both of these guys, they were great, but romney was, like, like bob newhart on steroids and that has far bigger impact. what do you say? >> i didn't get my invitation. >>neil: you are not important. >> no, i am not. >>neil: and i had a rented tux. >> did you wait a white tie? >>neil: no but i waited on tables. what do you make of the remarks? >> i thought romney was good. he is funny. he was, of course, no one is not funny at those things because
of the country, not to depend on prospects that are 75 percent out of the united states the i started out with little and i have a great company with 5,000 employees and i don't want to see this go up in smoke if we can't get our act together. >>neil: do you think that is likely? say you do something like this, the end the year they pun, they decide whether it is president obama re-elected or mitt romney elected, that they extend all the coming spending cuts, all the expiring tax rates extend them for another six months and re-elect a president and congress or a newly elected president and congress, do something more substancive in the new year. >>guest: as much as i hate kicking the can down the road, again, it is just not feasible to come up with comprehensive tax reform and a whole new deal for entitlements between november 7 and december 31. so, practically speaking, that is the most likely and probably the most reasonable thing to do. but come the day after inauguration, when the house is back in session we need to get going on this thing and solve this problem. >>neil: is there a po
the united states and his administration, opening up negotiations with our number one, arguably, enemy there, the muslim brotherhood. we have requests for security which they will not give yet our guys in paris seem to get all of the security they want. >>neil: they were blaming that on republicans. >>guest: well, of course, of course, it is very easy to blame the republicans. that is nonsense. it's any descriptive word you want to use. i just think that for the vice president to turn around and same in the same breath that iran and not have a delivery system, that goes miles to tell the american people that not only is he totally in another world and disconnected but the administration back what he said because no one has backed away from that statement since last night. you are left with two choices, he lied or he is not important enough to influence so, either way it is damning indict. thank you, win simmons. your book is a chilling parallel to what is going on in the middle east. a sobering wake-up call. >>guest: thank you for having me. >>neil: he looked up to jack kemp and was a vice p
in the united states. by the way it is a great way to increase investment on out sourcing to china and india and germany and france. i find it to an job killer. do not have this giant tax increase but this is an example of the president putting fairness over growth. >> we have heard someone from the administration admitting letting tax cuts expire is a tax increase to the petroleum. >>guest: that is a good point. they is denied this is a tax increase and biden is now the truth teller of this administration. it is something we have been saying for the last four years. when you let the taxes go up, that is a tax increase, that is not a tax decrease. it is not preventing a tax cut. this is not a big give away to the rip the i looked at the data because i was involved in 23 tree when president public did that tax cut, we had a record inflow of tax revenues from capital gains and dividends after we cut the rates. if you had me on a year from now and president obama is re-elected and he gaza forward with the tax increases we will get less money from capital gains and dividends than if we kept the
understand an act of terror is something that is directed against the united states, against our best interests. >>neil: but what confused them ,e act of terror, whatever you call it, was precipitated by a film on mohammed and not something pre-planned which gets into the weeds but cuts to the heart of the administration's argument that it was being disingenuous with the american people. >>guest: will, i don't think so. when the president was this in the rose garden september 12 talking about the deaths of the ambassador and his security detail he made it clear i was an act of terror that we were looking for the culprits. we will bring them to justice. we have to reconstruct the seen to determine who is sponsible go after them. that is what he will do. that is what he has done pursuing terrorists all overtime globe, taking down bin laden. >>neil: you do not think harry reid has been inconsistent and different people in the administration are saying different things leading to the notion this is a confused foreign policy and now we have the wrinkle of drones studying and videotaping th
